Make Your Own Fan Wedding Favors

May 10, 2008
If you are having an outdoors wedding or reception, or your wedding location is without air conditioning (unheard of here in Texas), making your guests a fan wedding favor is a great idea. Instead of making your wedding guests suffer in what could be sweltering heat on your wedding day, pass out these fan wedding favors at the ceremony or the reception, or both as necessary, and you will help keep your guests happy and comfortable for the duration of your wedding.

A fan wedding favor really is incredibly easy to make, and makes not only a unique wedding favor, but a useful one as well. Also, with two different sides to your fan, the combination you use is totally up to you! You can use a cute picture of you two with a romantic verse on one side and the ceremony program on the other, or instead of the program you can have the menu, directions to the reception site, the story of how you met and fell in love, special thanks to those who helped, the possibilities are as wide as your imagination. Another great plus, this handmade wedding favor is easy to make!

Heart shapes are the most popular shape of fans for a wedding fan, but you can really choose any shape that you like. Create a layout complete with pictures and design for your fan on the computer, and print it out. Then you can either buy some card stock and print off all the copies you will need on your computer or take it to a copy shop (their printers are better-and don't cost much money) and get all the print outs you need for each side. White is the most popular color for fans, though you can use colored paper to compliment your wedding colors as well which, can be very pretty.

Then, having a pre-made template, cut out all of your pages into the shape you have decided on, and then you can go to work. Grab some paint sticks or buy some other kind of handle like Popsicle sticks or any other decorative thing you can find. (Most stores will give out paint sticks for free though). Spray paint all of the handles white, and then glue the front and back of the fan to the handle with craft glue.Helpful hint, if you glue the stick near the top of the paper of the fan, it will make a sturdier fan.

If the handle you buy is already decorated, then just skip this part. You can decorate the handle of your fan a number of ways. You can tie ribbon or tulle around the base of the handle for decoration, or a group of ribbons with colors that compliment your wedding. Another fun idea is to employ the use of a glue gun to glue buttons, rhinestones, or other decorative sparkles to your fan.

This is a great homemade wedding favor that only takes a few minutes to make, and your guests will enjoy looking at them as much as using them. Not only that, but you'll find that many of your wedding guests will save your fans not only as a memory keepsake, but for something to use when the temperature is a little warm as well.
